I was wondering if animated can be shown in a grid?

I am evaulating if it is possible is to display a symbol that behaves like it is flashing

Can you give some guidelines to emulate this?

Unfortunately we have no GIF animation grid cell in Prof-UIS. No grid cell uses any timer based animations. The grid cells can change their look only while handling mouse or keyboard input. But the grid control displayed on the Grid dialog page in the ProfUIS_Controls sample application shows an animated progress bar. The CPageGrid dialog page is running a timer which changes grid cells and repaints them (CPageGrid::OnTimer()). You should do the same if you need to implement some animation. But you also need to create a new grid cell class which supports animated content painting. Please provide us with more details about where the animation should appear and we will help you to code it. Do you want to make the build-in cell icon animated or entire grid cells should work like video player?
